There’s Something About Mary πŸŒ‚πŸ¦


I’m one step away from ruining this painting if I do any more updates so I’m going to call time on it now even though I know there’s much I’d like to change.

It’s very easy to say “I’ll just try this” and it’s Game Over πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Hopefully I can get the green tape off without ripping it.

One of the lessons learnt on this portrait was to use the right paper or quit early if it’s wrong. I spent a lot of time doing fairly light and dry layers just to avoid damaging the paper, if I’d done it on proper watercolour paper I could’ve been bolder in some of the decisions.

Here’s a few progress shots, as usual it all starts with the eyes…

          Yes she is – mine!! This was purely a project for myself, and I wouldn’t sell it on this wrong paper. I’ll scan it in but I can’t imagine why anyone would want a print of it. Maybe I’ll stick it on a mug or something πŸ˜‰

            Haha! Fabulous! You need a β€œMary” quote to go along with it on the mug. I would buy one! πŸ˜„
